Grey hair was big at the end of 2016, and we don’t think it’ll be going anywhere for 2017. If you’re looking for a fresh hair colour this January, silver locks could be right up your street. They (surprisingly) work for any skin tone, and look even better with a little root growth – result!
Before we share our favourite Insta-picks with you, here are some of our top tips for getting the look yourself…
Get the look
- First off, we’re sorry to break it to you, but many of the silver-haired girls you see on Insta are wearing wigs. If you’re thinking about trying this trend, why not invest in a wig first to test out the colour without a long-term (and financial) commitment?
- To achieve the grey look, you’ll have to have your hair professionally bleached and then a grey or silver dye applied on top. Depending on how dark your natural hair is, you may even have to get it bleached twice, so we recommend investing in some intensive hydrating masques to keep your locks in tip-top condition.
- Maintaining this grey shade is similar to keeping platinum blonde hair cool-toned – pick up some violet shampoos and conditioners to knock out any yellow tones in the hair and keep your silver sleek.
